Mylan Faces U.S. Antitrust Investigation on EpiPen

  • Maker of EpiPen says it got FTC request in preliminary probe
  • Inquiry follows controversy over price hikes for allergy drug

Mylan NV set off a firestorm in Congress last year over skyrocketing prices of its EpiPen. Now it’s facing a U.S. antitrust investigation over whether it improperly thwarted competition to the blockbuster product. 

The company has received a request for information from the Federal Trade Commission as part of a preliminary investigation, it said Monday in response to a query from Bloomberg. It said it hasn’t acted improperly to prevent generic competition.
